To let You Both Know I Still Cared About Your Father and we were married 28 years and that made your Father a part of my life and I will always have that connection with him because and through You Two and even After Our Divorce and I was always thought that I would be the first to die due to All my Medical Issues and not your Father... And I Would Not Wish Anything Like This On Your Father... You Both have my Sincere and Deepest Sympathy On the Loss of your Father... And I wanted to let You Both know in your Father's and I 28 years of marriage the best thing that came out of it was You Two...

So sorry to hear of Doug‘s passing. We grew up in the same neighborhood together. Always playing kickball or basketball at Sacred Heart school. Or playing baseball in a field somewhere or just riding bicycles around town. We always remained good friends throughout high school sharing many classes together. We both went our separate ways after high school. We did however we connect again later in life . Our sincere sympathy and condolences to his family you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace Doug until we meet again. ?
